Chalice route reStructuredText autodoc directive for docutils/Sphinx.

Project description

Chalicedoc makes documenting Chalice applications easier.

This module adds a “chalice” domain for reStructuredText, which can be used by Sphinx/docutils to autogenerate documentation of your chalice routes using the docstrings in your Chalice app.

Usage (Sphinx)

Usage is simple. First, you must include the chalicedoc module in your extensions list in

extensions = [

Next, within your .rst source, use the “chalice:project” directive to scan your app for docstrings:

.. chalice:project:: path/to/chalice/project

This will product output as follows:

  1. The title will be adapted from the chalice app_name
  2. The docstring of your module will be included as a summary
  3. For each route:
    1. The path will be added as a section title
    2. The method will be added as a section subtitle
    3. The docstring of the corresponding function will be used as the section content
